Prosecutors reveal a reason for Capitol rioter's secretive sentencing: His government cooperation

  • Samuel Lazar, a Pennsylvania man involved in the Capitol riot, cooperated with federal authorities after the event, resulting in the secrecy surrounding his guilty plea and prison sentence. Publicly releasing the information he provided could interfere with ongoing investigations.
  • Lazar was dressed in tactical gear and used chemical spray on police officers during the riot. He approached police lines and discharged an orange chemical irritant. He remained jailed for almost two years before his 30-month prison sentence.
  • Requests from news outlets to unseal records of Lazar's guilty plea and punishment have been denied, and prosecutors and Lazar's attorney are seeking 30 days to redact records of his cooperation before they are publicly released.
